Kyiv (Remembering Guernica) copyright 2020/2022┬áDouglas Stockdale I find myself in a similar place that Picasso did in 1938 when Hitler bombed the civilian city of Guernica in Spain during the Spanish Civil War; how does one portray the suffering wrought by needless violence and chaos of an unprovoked attack?
